Clos de Los Siete Michel Rolland Malbec Blend Clos de Los Siete 2006

Member Review by barclayloftus:

I also really liked this. I was expecting something quite a bit different, but it's actually pretty subdued. A lot of lush cherry up front (though, not sugary which is nice). Some notes of dark chocolate, and a real surprising amount of structure. The finish is spicy and dry… maybe a little oak heavy, but not too overdone. Very nice—I'd totally buy it again. Paired it with a roasted pork with green peppercorn sauce, rough mashed fingerling potatoes, and sautéed asparagus.

Clos de los Siete is a wine project conceived in 1998 by renown French winemakers Michel Rolland and Jean-Michel Arcaute. The idea was to produce a wine in the then largely untapped landscape of Tunuyan valley, south of Mendoza, Argentina. The name derives from the original seven wine industry investors who were first attached to the project. Their mission was to make wines in Argentina that rival some of the best in the world, without the use of fertilizers, pesticides and with traditional, time-tested methods. Since then, a collective of wine-making estates bearing the Clos de los Siete name have emerged and gained prominence.  Read less

We really enjoyed this wine and are looking forward to seeing where it goes over time. Big enough to lay down for future drinking, smooth enough to drink now if you don't mind some heat. Nice oak in the background. Alcohol seems a bit on the high side. I like to pair this with food from the region - churasco, etc.

loads of varying dark fruits on the nose and palate - blackberries, black cherries, currants and hints of blue berries and cocoa. Enjoyable on its own and with food.

Very young and fruit forward - leads with Malbec - taste is all Argentina. Looking forward to trying my other bottle in another couple years.

Deep purple color in the glass. This wine had oily legs that clung to the sides of the glass, no doubt due to the high alcohol. The nose shows plum, berries, oak, and some alcohol. On the palate the flavors of this wine follow the nose for the most part with quite a bit of ripe fruit. The medium-full body had some pleasant smoothness to it. The tannins in this wine were mouth-drying and substantial. The alcohol in this wine was a bit hot at times. I think this wine might be too young at this point and would probably benefit from additional bottle aging. Overall, I think that this wine was good but a little one-dimensional and lacking in complexity. There were nice fruit flavors that would probably pair nicely with a dinner of steak or something similar. High 3 out of 5.
